  • Can You Bear To Love The World

    Can You Bear To Love The World

    We are drops of rain on the surface of the vastest ocean Single drops A single drop In an uncomprehensible deluge Onto an unfathomable expanse An uncalculateable depth And yet, here we are, single drops. Maybe I can grasp at the ungraspable But it won’t be with my mind Because my mind is a machine […]

  • I know you

    I know you. I’ve been in the deep, dark with you, I remember because you stayed at the entrance of the cave even though it was your idea to come explore in the first place. I know you. I’ve heard you brag. I’ve seen you get offended and be wrong and get offended again. I […]

  • Home

    My heart is full of hope in the most tragic of times When all around is anger and violence. I know these old opponents, But I don’t honor them now. I see possibility, necessity and responsibility with an adult child’s fear that everyone will see me as I am. I am grateful for the child […]

    If I won’t have the courage to point my finger inward how will I ever evolve to truly leave a better world for my son. Being a victim of violence and Behaving as if you are a victim of violence are as different as fire and water. If I won’t have the courage to first […]

  • Springtime

    I must be more afraid of losing my humanity than I am of talking to strangers, If I want to overcome. Then, in those cases, the only thing you can trust is that anything can happen. But anything can happen anytime. So you might as well develop into the person you want to be, in […]

  • Desk Chair Humanity

    Desk chairs Corner office Confused around a table. A gaggle of chairs. The building, I can’t see it’s end or sides or back. There are so many desk chairs. And so many offices with so many tables. There are so many desk chairs, confused around tables. There are so many buildings that I can’t see […]
